What Is A Google Bot?

What is a Google bot?

How to Google to Index your website successfully (Google Bot looks awesome right?) Before we get started on some good tips to attract the Google bot to your site, let’s start with what the Google bot is. The Googlebot is simply the search bot software that Google sends out to collect information about documents on the web to add to Google’s searchable index. These are little soldiers that Google uses 24/7, 365 days a year to update so that when you search something it will show up on the SERPS (Technical term for “Search Engine Results Pages”) So how does the Google bot collect information?

The Google bot uses a process called “Crawling” and this is the process where the Googlebot goes around from website to website, finding new and updated information to report back to Google. The Googlebot finds what to crawl using links. These links can be your domain address for the pages you have on your website and also links from other website linking back to your website. This web of links is what the Google bot uses to crawl like a railway for a train.
